Citrus Brownie Vegan French Toast Muffins (Gluten Free)
Starting the year, week, and month the best way I know. A simple and delicious recipe suing no animal products or gluten... this is a recipe for everyone who loves a good comforting breakfast or snack, why not?
This recipe is gluten free and vegan and high in protein since we are using chocolate pea protein... also low in sugar! And don't worry, it has an amazing flavor (boyfriend approved!) so stick around for full details here!
Anyways, another thing that makes me feel so pumped about spring is the recipes! French toast might be an all year long thing but I think that it's just the perfect recipe that sets the mood for the season especially with those chocolate vegan vibes on this recipe.
This is a twist of a bread pudding casserole, we are stepping up the game and creating a fusion inspired by these amazing and classic recipes; french toast muffins and chocolate brownies. In a delicious skillet, that it is also gluten free, vegan and low carb!
You can see how incredible the textures in these citrus chocolate frecnh toast muffins is! The coconut, almonds, and pumpkin seeds on top are just AMAZING!
For this recipe I simply used Carbonaut, white bread; but wait! This bread is low carb and 100% plant-based... how cool is that? Each slice has only 1 grams of net carbs and 14 grams of fiber. I'm obsessed. Their bread is also available on selected Sprouts and Target!
Keto certified too! That means a lot to me and this is why. For a product be keto certified needs to have specific standards. It's has 1g net carbs, it can't contain hydrogenated oils, artificial ingredients, no maltitol or other artificial sweeteners. They actually have a full page on the ingredients allowed and not allowed. Check them here!
You can recreate your personal comfort foods while still keeping them low carb and plant diet. Just like this easy french toast muffin recipe! Easy to make, comforting, moist, flavor and with all the amazing textures.
As a nutritionist I admire the impact of low carb diets on our bodies! From reducing inflammation to the control of hormones.
From reducing inflammation to controlling insulin levels, ghrelin (hunger hormone) to better and staple energy labels, no crash or hangry feelings. And having these alternatives in the market just makes everything easier and delicious!
This recipe is all about that! And nutrient dense foods. A comforting vegan and keto recipe that will keep insulin levels at bay and nourish your body! All the vitamins from the ingredients here; nut butter, alullose, mandarins, flaxseed, plant-based brownie bars... healthy and indulgent!
For this recipe I used all plant-based and low carb ingredients:

Guys, kudos for Carbonaut on making such a great 100% plant-based bread! Because creating a low carb version and a vegan recipe requires science! I am grateful for my food chem classes because they have been helpful on my food blogger journey.

Flaxseeds are great egg replacements, both work like a sort of glue.
For this recipe I wanted to use keto brownie bars and pea protein to add that creaminess and thickness... and of course, more flavor to the recipe and it was a game changer! The crunch of the brownie bars is just perfect and the pea protein helps with the baking part... it's a game changer to bake with pea protein.
